A must-see cabaret of burly baritone turned delicious diva
Perth born baritone Robert Hoffman is performing his unique and award-winning form of cabaret for a very limited time Downstairs at the Maj before winging off to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Desperately Young at Heart will be on the evenings of July the 3rd and 4th.

The show is Hoffmann, more usually a singer with the West Australian Opera, having a wonderful time as a variety of characters - sequinned or leather-clad, wacky or straight - in a eclectic mix of stand-up, impersonation, and straight, deeply professional singing from pop to opera.

Hoffman says: "I am very excited about performing at Downstairs at the Maj as it's the premiere venue for cabaret in the city and the timing is perfect because it gives Perth audiences a unique opportunity to see Desperately Young at Heart just before it makes its international debut at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe."

Desperately Young at Heart won Best Cabaret at the Fringe World Festival 2014 and his next show, It Ain't Vot You Do It's Ze Vay Zat You Do It! enjoyed phenomenal success at the next Fringe World Festival.
